Hobie Mirage Outback

The all-new 2019 Hobie Mirage Outback brings a fresh new design to their top selling fishing kayak. Stacks of stability, an efficient hull design, unbelievable seating comfort, fully loaded with the latest fishing features and all powered by the incredible Mirage Drive 180 with ST Turbo Fins. Hobie have just set a new standard amongst pedal-drive fishing kayaks!

Designed to be the perfect all-rounder for both fishing and general touring, the Outback has a hull which performs well on both inland waterways and inshore coastal waters. The stable hull design provides a comfortable platform to fish from all-day long and the new efficient bow pierces well through wind and chop whilst reducing hull slap. The Outback is propelled through the water using the revolutionary Mirage Drive 180 system - full power pedal drive in forwards and reverse! Switching between forwards and reverse is as simple and easy as pulling a toggle on the drive system. Steering is easy as well with the integrated kick-up rudder and steering controls found on both sides of the seat, allowing you to manoeuvre in and out of the tightest of spots.

The super comfortable Vantage CTW seat ensures you will have comfortable ride. Fully adjustable and supportive, you really can be out all day.

A large bow hatch will take plenty of gear and has enough space for fold-up trolleys such as the Railblaza C-Tug. The Outback also comes fitted with the Hobie Guardian Transducer Shield - a retractable transducer mount for your fish finder keeping it well protected during launch/landing and transport. Fitted Thru-Hull Cable Seals for the fish finder wiring makes fish finder installation easier than ever on the Outback.

Everything is just where you need it with Rubber Mesh Storage Pockets making a handy place to store small items of gear. There are also tool holding notches present - ideal for keeping your scissors handy. There is stacks of storage space on this kayak with a large rear cargo area which will easily hold a Hobie H Crate. Accessories tracks are also found at the sides of the rear cargo area - perfect for mounting camera poles/booms, safety flags and lighting poles.

The Outback is also supplied with a 2-piece fibreglass paddle, in case you fancy exercising your arms.

The superior stability provided by the Outback’s hull design allows for stand-up fishing and casting on calm waters. EVA Foam Standing Pads are fitted either side of the centre hatch to give a grippy level surface for standing.

This is possibly the best-equipped and most well thought-out fishing kayak ever for all-round fishing on coastal and inland waters.

Available in 6 colour options.



Hobie Mirage Drive 180 System

Hobie Mirage Drive 180
V2 System

The Hobie kayaks are famous for their Mirage Drive pedal system. This system consists of a pair of pedals that drive two rubber fins side to side to propel the kayak forward.


The Mirage System is silent while pedaling and creates no splash, it also allows you to effortlessly pedal the kayak with your feet while keeping your hands free. For 2017 Hobie have introduced a simple 'pull' to reverse the drive and allow backwards drives as well as forwards drive. Brilliant!!!

We offer a delivery service for the Hobie Mirage Outback throughout the UK & Ireland to home and work addresses.

Delivery times are estimates based on years of experience; we do not offer a guaranteed timed delivery service. Our overnight service works well for the core more densely populated areas of the UK for Clothing and Equipment orders. However more remote less densely populated areas will not be covered by a next day service.

Delivery of canoes and kayaks is classed as “ugly freight” because mechanical handling and automatic parcel processing cannot be used; therefore a delivery time of 3-5 working days is more realistic. For remote location that delivery time will be dependent on the local courier’s ability to onward ship the goods. Not all areas of the UK are serviced by vehicles that can handle canoes and kayaks. Online orders can be tracked online using the courier’s website – tracking details will be provided. We make every effort to deliver goods within the estimated time scales.

The delivery price will be shown in the shopping basket.
